Tween and teens never want much of anything for their birthdays or Christmas. My cousin just turned 12 and all he wanted was money. I’m happy to give money as a gift but I like to spice it up a little. Anyone can toss a $20 bill into a card but I like to take the time to put a little bit of thought and creativity into my gifts. This one didn’t require much time or effort but it adds just a little something. This chocolate & money gift is sure to be a hit with any teenager or tween.
- Chocolate bars – 2 or 3 depending on size
- Contrasting paper just larger than the money
- Ribbon, twine, elastic, etc.
Stack your chocolate bars and wrap your contrasting paper around them, taping into place on the sides or somewhere a bit discreet.
Next, wrap your money around the paper/chocolate bars and secure ends with a small piece of tape.
Place your ribbon, elastic or twine around the whole bundle.
Voila! You have a simple gift for your tween or teen featuring two of their favourite things: chocolate & money!
